I found the recipe on Pinterest of course, but as there are only a couple of ingredients I don't feel bad sharing them here. Of course, I believe in giving credit where credit is due, so I'm linking to the original source here.
- pack of chicken thighs (recipe calls for boneless, skinless; I used bone=in thighs and pulled off the skin)
- jar of pesto (I used one of my homemade jars of pesto that I had in the freezer)
- a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dip
- 1/2 cup of chicken broth
Put it all in the crockpot. Stir it up. Cook on high for 3-4 hrs.
After the chicken was done, I took my dish to my mom's and added it to her yummy leftovers from a previous meal - brown rice, cabbage, cooked carrots.
So, so good! And let me tell you. They weren't your ordinary cooked carrots. They were cooked in orange marmalade and a bit of curry. Super tasty!
I'm feeling a real affection for my crockpot and this meal proved worthy of the pin. Now, since I am sort of a Pin-fanatic, I'll say that I stumbled upon some DIY Ranch dressing seasoning mixes. Next time I'll make my own dry mix instead of using that store-bought packet. You know, I love controlling my own salt. Plus, it gives me an excuse for growing some more herbs this year. :-)
And because I'm loving videos these days, here's the recipe in action!
